." george would never have been seen with the likes of sheldon adelson or donald trump. regardless of the spit take it causes from your father's old friends as you try to wrap yourself in the mantle of your father's integrity, the fact is funds must be raised and the romney campaign announced that just last month in september they raised $170 million chrks, which is a lot but is $10 million less than the obama campaign raised. the campaigns are closely matched with what they are raising. where the president and democrats are getting swamped is by the money spent by outside groups. the dark money. money spent outside the campaign. since labor day the spending on the presidential election by outside groups, the proportion of that spending that's been pro-romney and anti-obama is almost three quarters a huge majority of the dark money spending is republican money. that's what's swamping the democrats. what the money is being spent on is tv ads. by the middle of august this year, we had already seen the same amount of spending as we saw in the entire election cycle in 2008. with all th

on mitt romney list is sheldon adelson, the owner of the las vegas sands casino empire which has been named so often a throughout this campaign. he has raised $34 million so far. how is the romney campaign using that money? >> well, not just raise $34 million. he has donated himself personally with his wife and daughter, something like $25 million of that money. so that is a ton of cash coming from one person. and a, you know, look. the fact is this has been one of the campaigns where we're on pace for a billion dollars in fundraising, or in ad spending. so we're at about $840 million now. and it's just a wash from both sides. >> you know, when you say $1 billion. we're saying it could be a billion dollars. and now that we're getting close to it, it's very much a reality here. a billion dollars. it's really hard to put one's arms around that. >> right. and that's just for tv and radio ads, local and national and on cable. that is just a ton of money. and most of it being spent in three places. ohio, florida, and virginia. and ohio, watch this week. we've been saying for a while now th

was endorsing the president's position. i thought i heard somewhere the sound of sheldon adelson and maybe john bolton choking on a pretzel last nilt. the neocons must not be happy with that new language. it's the case that the country is weary of war. i knows if he's going to win over the undecideds left in the battleground states he can't come across like someone who is going to jump into more foreign entanglemen entanglements. it's an untenable political position at this point. >> i just want to get to iran on this political question, the poll tiges of this thing. i don't know who is more likely to strike at iran if it looks like they're getting close to having a weapon. i wouldn't put it past obama. i think he knows it's essential we do something to prevent from that happening. we have no idea how much of a hair trigger we would have in using it. we have no idea. they're not even like the pakistanis who are scary enough. it seems to me if you're calculating this election who is most likely to strike, i would do it this way. i would say who is most likely to do it in a way that considers the
